Half a dozen cups (6) of sifted cake flour – Baking powder 2 Tablespoon – 1 to 1/2 cups margarine or butter – 3 cups milk – 2 cups sugar – 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract – 12 egg whites
Always preheat the oven beforehand – the temperature for this baking session 325°F. Be sure to grease the bottom of the container (pans) then line with grease proof or parchment paper. Use a sieve to sift the baking powder and flour together ensuring no lumps – then leave to one side. Take other ingredients – butter and sugar – cream both together to a light fluffy texture. Whisk or beat the egg whites until stiff, egg whites still need to be moist not dry.
When using the blender keep on a slow speed. Add the sifted flour mixture to the butter cream, alternately with milk. Whisk in the teaspoon of vanilla extract. Lightly fold the egg whites into batter. Add this to your ready prepared pans. Test the baked result by inserting a toothpick into the middle and if it comes out clean then it is ready.
